Welcome to POTW #47, 2/1/09 - 2/15/09

Rules as before:

1) No theme just your favorite stuff.
2) Let's keep it to about 4-6 images per post just so the thread doesn't get too big each week .
3) Any Pentax camera is fine, film, P&S, DSLR (or Samsung DSLR)
4) Date : Sunday 2/1/09 - Sunday 2/15/09
5) Enter anything you shot last week or this current week until the thread closes.

been quite busy lately (a lot of overtime work believe it or not) so I haven't had much time to shoot. I did do a quick product shot of a 'new' watch I purchased the other day. Benrus DTU-2A/P MIL-W-3818B, March 1969 contract date.

Maxwell1295 - great shot, funky!

Séamuis - This shot exhibits your new watch very good. I think it fits with the bag (??) in the background

Frank - that first shot is just great! Moody, very nice.

I am just longing for spring, but it is getting stormy here and it rained quite a lot today. Tomorrow won't be much better anyway... So, here are some shots from indoor flowers, for the time being

Shot, again, with my M42 Helios-M44-4 58mm, all with the lens wide open (f/2) as far as I remember....

Thanks for hosting Rense - that is a good start I am thristy indeed. However I go on vacation in a week and I promised myslef no Calorie loaded Beers till then (and it's been tough!). Also nice to see some colors in the flowers. February / March is tough here drab and snowing ....

Alan - mission accomplished - very Janice Joplin like ....

Semius - nice watch - I can't wear nice watches I tend to rub them against cement pillars and such.

Frank nice shot of SF ! That blimp and pp makes it look circa 1940'ish. Well done.
